>>3222 Happy belated birthday anon
It's been months I haven't posted on a IB. >>3222 Hey, what a coincidence! It was my 24th birthday few days ago too! The only ones who remembered were my family and a neighbor, and the only things I received was lunching my favorite dish and a mug from my neighbor. I still live with my parents, lel, but my older siblings used to live with them not long ago; not easy to find somewhere else to live alone here nowadays. Oh, and happy belated birthday, anon. Keep going!
I drove over 11 hours today, probably averaging 80mph. Fun, but I am fucking exhausted.
I'm having a great night, had a bit of a breakthrough about my life. Realized that I need to prioritize my needs and emotions first, not caring about what other people think and finally admitting, accepting, forgiving and letting go of past mistakes, flaws and cringe memories -nothing serious but I've definitely fucked up and embarrassed myself in front of people more than once, especially over girls. I've had a difficult time trying to rid myself of the need for validation from women. That also includes developing autonomy and control over my emotions, not relying on other people's validation (parents mainly) and feelings of happiness to satisfy that people pleasing desire. I just wanted everything to be "perfect" and have no dysfunction because I felt this compulsion and massive fear if it wasn't. I thought "perfect" was this unnatural view that people are happy 100% of the time with no problems whatsoever. People have leveraged that to manipulate me into doing shit, I have a hard time with boundaries and I need to learn how to hold my "frame." At the end of the day, accepting the reality of who I am, the reality that I cannot please everyone, I cannot force people to be happy, that people are pretty shitty and will try to take advantage of me and that I need to laugh at and forgive myself. Also chans are being deliberately killed and suppressed and we've entered some kind of dark age, but I reckon that alt-chans will make a come back and if halfchan goes dark then decentralized chans will make a resurgence.
I spontaneously decided to go to a con for the first time today. Haven't been around people my age in almost 5 years. When I got there, I just cried in the parking lot for an hour. Then, I wandered around for a while like a ghost haunting the place, then left. I don't know if it's possible to make frens as an old retard, but I plan to give it an honest try before offing myself.

Recommendations for media about kind people? (Especially if they are having fun together in a community.) Can be anything, anime VNs, LNs, actual books etc. I like the book Pollyanna a lot, I think her perspective to always find something to be thankful for is beautiful.

I saw the Straight Story today and it was a simple wholesome movie. No overt messages and agendas, just a man looking to make amends his estranged brother. Sissy Spacek's character was also adorable.
Johnny Come Lately (1943): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQFl4ynM7MQ It's a lesser known James Cagney movie about a vagrant ex-newspaper man who repays an elderly woman who helps him get out of legal trouble by assisting her with her newspaper and resisting attempts of her corrupt rival to buy him out.

>>2468 the bridge to terabithia by katherine paterson is a book that frequently ends up on school library censor lists. which is a shame, as i feel that many children and even adults would grow emotionally from reading this book. as for the story's themes, the important themes covered are friendship, loss, and imagination.

let's たこ! / 蛸! 'bout the perspective perspective~! octopuses, which are known as tako (たこ) in japanese, have a strange connection with traditional japanese art, manga, and anime. these neat pictures of figurines i found feature these octopuses. >>1470 car anon, i finally got around to you! i'm really sorry, i meant to reply to you a month ago. i was kidding when i said flying HICE cars were the future, but HICE cars in general are actually a terrible idea, for this reason: hydrogen fuel is like a leaky rechargeable battery. energy has to be put into this battery in order to later get energy out of it. and once you use this battery, you're going to lose this energy fast. but even more importantly, if the energy doesn't come from a clean source, like renewable or nuclear energy, then the hydrogen fuel itself isn't clean. this is probably the reason why hydrogen cars lost out in popularity to EVs, which have batteries that can be recharged over and over with clean electricity. >I think HICEs are going to be limited to motorsports, since they're a little more practical for that than EVs and they don't have to abide by the same laws as the cars you see on the road. for motorsports, i think the ideal vehicle would be a hydrogen car with a wankel engine, like mazda's RX-8 Hydrogen RE. but EVs can be quite competitive.
>>2451 >i was kidding when i said flying HICE cars were the future I figured, but I was bored and wanted to explore the idea a bit myself. >but even more importantly, if the energy doesn't come from a clean source, like renewable or nuclear energy, then the hydrogen fuel itself isn't clean. Same for EVs. They're hellish on the environment producing the batteries, not to mention they go bad relatively fast as well. Either are currently poor environmental solutions. ICE isn't even much of an issue. It's mostly the big ass container ships causing the emissions. This is all another can of worms. Either way, they both have a long way to go before they're a reasonable choice. And then they have to be used for years until they're actually affordable for everyone. >ideal vehicle would be a hydrogen car with a wankel engine For now. Assuming EVs do get developed to the point that they aren't totally useless in terms of performance, I think they would overtake the HICE. An issue with the wankel engine is that they are less fuel efficient and less torque. Torque on wankel engines is generally subpar. While the wankel engine produces an exceptional amount of horsepower, it won't have the same "get up and go" as a piston engine of comparable power. Wankels shine in races like Le Mans, where it just recently got unbanned. The long straight section allows that top end power to shine. You wouldn't see too much benefit from the lighter weight though, since I would guess that cars competing will hover around as close to the weight restrictions as they can, regardless of engine format. I suppose that weight could go to something else though. EVs are more or less the opposite of the wankel. Relatively heavy, great acceleration, not great top speed. Sorry if my post is all over the place. I wrote it during breaks at work.

look at these scenes and imagine yourself in them. how do you feel? i found these pictures in the perspective view to be beautifully immersive. >>2482 >They're hellish on the environment producing the batteries, not to mention they go bad relatively fast as well. that's a good point. i suppose EV's popularity comes down to cost then. i did a brief skim on hydrogen production costs, and it looks like producing hydrogen fuel by using renewable energy is roughly three times more expensive than producing hydrogen the non-renewable way. if you only consider net energy costs, the situation is a lot nicer with batteries, as less energy is wasted by sending electricity through a battery. the last part of your post was pretty informative. i wasn't aware of the specifics that had to do with racing, like Le Mans banning wankel engines. do gasoline-fueled wankel engines really provide that much advantage?
>>2744 >how do you feel? The first one is nice. A temperate summer day in rural Japan. Seems perfect for exploring. The other two are a little less nice. Planes are kind of annoying. Living near a major airport has killed any enthusiasm for planes. >Do gasoline-fueled wankel engines really provide that much advantage? Maybe. They're better over longterm, but they still lack torque so they'll be beat in a short race. Supposedly, there was already a rule in the making banning wankels, but it could just be ass-blasted euros because they got beat by a Japanese company in the big race. Today, I doubt it would perform as well in comparison to piston engines. Wankel development slowed to a crawl afterward, since there isn't much of a reason to make serious developments when they can't compete in races that require every little bit that can put into a car to win.

>>2755 >Planes are kind of annoying. while they do get awfully loud, airplanes are one of the coolest ways to travel. did you know the first vehicle to reach supersonic speeds was the Bell X-1, which was an experimental jetplane from the 1940s? it had a blazing fast top speed of 1600 mph (2600 kph), which is twice the speed of sound (aka mach 1). by comparison, modern f1 race cars have a top speed far below the speed of sound, around 200 mph (320 kph). can you imagine the wind speeds you'd get from driving a car at that speed? try imagining the sonic winds the Bell X-1 experienced as it broke the sound barrier... >Living near a major airport has killed any enthusiasm for planes. this is sad. is there an aviation or a space museum near where you live? those sort of places are a great way to spend an afternoon or two learning spacecraft and aviation history and get freeze-dried ice cream. and if you're lucky, a museum visit might also spark an interest in aviation, but who knows.

The "you can't read in dreams" doesn't mean you can't pick up a dream book and know what is written, it only means that you don't turn text into meaning, just have the meaning appear. If you get a lucid dream, try reading the same sign, LED clock, or anything, more than once. Or focus on the shapes, not meaning. You won't be able to pin it down, the letters won't match the words.

My nightmares changed from me running away from something horribly infectious that will painfully turn me into a copy of itself, to ones where I'm lost and need to hurry somewhere or am writing an exam I'm unprepared for. Give me back my The Thing and giant insects, I don't want to remember the stress of university.
>>3174 I hate LED clocks even on the lowest setting it disturbs my sleep, that's why I have blackout certians. I am a light sleeper, seem to get tired at 9 and go to bed earlier because of the birds outside nesting outside my room are waking me up a 6-7 in the morning.
